Fresh Static (day 98)

There used to be

smoke and gunshots

when I heard your name

Chaos would reign

when I closed my eyes


There used to be

the bangs of cannons and

lightning and drums

Now it’s fresh static,

a picture coming loose from its frame


I know I should envy the quiet

but I want all the noise in the world
